The film, with the working title “DXK”, is to be produced by the company My Porn Production and will star Roberto Malone as the lead character “David Sex King.” Porn star Sandra Romain will play his wife and Katia De Lys will portray the hotel maid.
The production company’s website has called on members of the public to help fund the film’s €200,000 production. A minimum of €50 will secure their names in the credits and an invitation to the premiere.
According to the producers, the film will be a “parody” of the scandal that saw Strauss-Kahn accused of sexually assaulting Nafissatou Diallo, a Guinean hotel maid, while she was working at a New York hotel.
The US prosecutors dropped the case at the end of August, because of doubts about Diallo’s credibility. The scandal dashed Strauss-Kahn’s hopes of becoming the Socialist Party’s challenger to President Nicolas Sarkozy in next year’s election.
Strauss-Kahn is still facing a US civil suit brought against him by Diallo. Meanwhile, prosecutors in France halted an investigation into claims that he sexually assaulted French writer Tristane Banon in 2003 because the statute of limitations had expired.
The former IMF director is also caught up in another sex scandal, this time involving prostitutes allegedly procured by the management of the luxury Carlton hotel in Lille.
